“You never want to talk about death.
The ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ order isn’t about speeding up the end. Just not getting in its way.”

John Yang Born December 11, 1965
Died October 3 and October 21, 1996

The Author on the Making of her first Graphic Novel

Ingrid is an artist and designer based in Boston, Massachusetts. In addition to ‘Do Not Resuscitate’ she also writes a webcomic about growing up mixed-race in America called, ‘Secret Black Woman’.​​

Watch the video to hear her share how she completed her graphic novel using Procreate for iPad Pro, and how the book almost ended up as a misguided zombie-themed concept album.
